Deutsche Bank's Future Is More Fannie Mae Than Lehman

Aaron Brown

It's hard to recall the last time there was good news out of Deutsche Bank AG. Credit-rating downgrades and new lows for the stock price.  Added to a U.S. list of troubled lenders.  Only three of the 33 equity analysts following the German lender are positive on the stock, according to data compiled by Bloomberg. It's no wonder that there's a heightened fear that some bad event will completely destroy faith in Deutsche Bank, leading to its collapse and a 2008-style financial crisis, just as Lehman Brothers Holdings Inc.'s bankruptcy ignited a global financial conflagration.
